“I chose to study an LLM to deepen my understanding of international law, with a view to refocusing my professional career. In particular, I hope to gain an expert understanding of the interplay between the current track of climate negotiations, the Durban Platform, which will culminate at the Paris climate conference in 2015, and the long-standing principle of common but differentiated responsibility, as well as gaining a strong foundation in human rights law.”
